Roost Adds Smart Garage Door Sensor

Product Joins Brand’s Wi-Fi Connected Battery and Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector

The Roost Smart Garage Door Sensor will notify owners if the garage is still open at bedtime, or if it is left open after they drive away in the morning. Notifications can also be customized by time—if, for instance, a parent wants to be sure children arrive home after school between 3-4pm or if you just want to mange alert receipts to time of day when you want to receive them.

“We are in the business of creating technologies for the home that increase people’s sense of security and peace-of-mind,” said Roel Peeters, co-founder and CEO of Roost. “In the U.S., there are over 82 million home garages” and more than two thirds of homeowners use the garage door as their primary entry point. After fire and water damage, our research found that door security, especially the garage door ranked very high among home owner concerns. Like all of our smart sensors, we developed the new Roost Smart Garage Door Sensor to solve real, everyday consumer pain points.”

Battery life estimated at two years, with replaceable lithium battery available for $9.99 on The Roost Smart Garage Door Sensor (RGD-100) by available in late spring for $39.99. Pre-order on
